A group of protesters rallied at the Tulsa County courthouse early Wednesday in support of the Crutcher family. A small group of people gathered in support of the Crutcher family Wednesday morning-- chanting "hands up don't shoot" and "no justice no peace."

One of the organizers said it's not about dividing Tulsa, it's about having a conversation.

"We've all got to be equal that's what I'm going to do regardless of if its guilty or not guilty. I'm going to keep pushing for what's right. And I'm sure everybody else is too," said organizer Angie Pitts.

"We're not going to take it in a bad manner, we are going to keep fighting with our mouths, with our pencils. Going to our legislators, that's what we have to continue to do."

Marq Lewis of We The People Oklahoma said he doesn't know of any planned gatherings or demonstrations.

"There have been a lot of people who have just been sitting out, a lot of people have been taking off time from their jobs just to see this process go forth," he said.

Lewis said he has been circulating a petition against judge Judge Drummond. He said the trial should have been held in a larger courtroom to accommodate all of the people wanting to watch the process. 

According to the courthouse, the larger courtroom was already in use when the trial began.
